looks like a good ride.

I was hoping to be off work yesterday, but my new boss.... oh well..

so I rode to work, this morning the bike started acting up again. This thing has some electrical gremlins in it somewhere. I'm going to spend some time running down wires tonight.

Well, I had to buy a new instrument panel. It came with a DL650 attached.

Well, we only got a couple of hundred easy miles in yesterday, we had a wedding to attend this evening at 5 so we basically ran out for lunch and then straight home.

Old school, or a new model? I thought maybe you'd wind up with a DL1000 next...

I got a little ride in today.



it's a 2013 model. I seriously considered the 1000, but they would not come off the price any. They came off a lot on this bike. I told them I didn't want it - so they came off another $500.

Jackie and I took the bike to Memphis to see the kids and meet with the real estate agent. Took the meandering route back and wound up on the Trace. You KNOW what that means...

That would make a good thread theme, everyone seems to visit the Loveless Cafe. Your Selfie at Loveless!

Well, the Mrs. didn't feel good today so Ginger & I got out on our own. I left the house with a full tank of fuel and had to fuel up twice on the road....when I got home I was 80 miles into the third tank. It was a beautiful day and a fantastic ride, rained all day but not stormy...I really need today.

Mrs. Rocket and I rode to Lynnville yesterday to check out the Soda Pop Junction. If it isn't the BEST burger I've ever eaten its damn close. Walked a bit through Co Littleton's store and we were going to check out the local distillery but decided against it.

All in all a good ride.

And we saw these fine machines parked outside the train museum.
